This is her first TV interview since her husband was forced to step down as US President – and Melania Trump has spared the criticism. With American Vogue, the former first lady still had credit to liquidate.
Last summer, Jill Biden introduced her chic side and dashed off the August cover of American Vogue. And so the wife of US President Joe Biden follows a tradition, because in recent years, first ladies have repeatedly graced the cover of a fashion magazine during the tenure of their husbands. Michelle Obama has even appeared on the cover several times, as did her predecessors, Laura Bush and Hillary Clinton.
Melanie Trump Didn’t Get a Vogue Cover as First Lady
However, not one person received this honor during her time in the White House: Melania Trump. The magazine did not allocate a cover story to the former model as first lady between 2016 and 2020. In a new TV interview, the first since her husband Donald Trump was forced to step down as US President, the former first lady directly criticized Vogue and its editor-in-chief Anna Wintour over the decision.
